Proverbs 17:1

Better is a morsel with enjoyment in peace
Than a house full of many good things and unrighteous sacrifices with quarreling.

Personal Challenge...

As a society we have become so focused on collecting stuff. Many times we find ourselves asking, "Why do I have this?" just to end up with no answer. We hear our politicians and often our religious leaders telling us that we deserve the best, we have a right to the pursuit of happiness, which usually comes in the form of more stuff. I have spent much time in Haiti, Thailand, Mexico, and China and have learned that more stuff does not provide happiness, it becomes a burden, a master over us. If we cannot be content and at peace with the small morsel then we definitely will not with the house full of many things. Lord, have mercy! Lord, have mercy! Lord, have mercy!
